AMA GOLD LEADER CLUB!
We are happy to welcome you to our club
website. Arvada Associated Modelers (AAM) received its charter
from the Academy
of Model Aeronautics (AMA) in 1975 and now have the distinction of
being an A.M.A. Gold Leader Club. As we’ve grown and developed over the years
we’ve had the help of many enthusiastic and generous people. First and foremost
are the members of our club who have worked tirelessly over the years to make
this the most significant club in the country! Many of our members have donated
goods and services from their own businesses. Many donate their time and effort
to build and maintain a world-class flying site. Our members instruct new flyers
in the skills of flying R/C aircraft; in what may be described as the best
instructional program offered by any club in the U.S.A. Of course there exists a
long line of officers and board members who have guided our organization over
the past 30 years, keeping the club going and helping new members become active
R/C Pilots. As a Gold Leader Club with a membership of over 250 we are one
of the largest A.M.A. sanctioned clubs in the nation!
Monthly meetings for all members, their
friends, and guests who come to meet our group, gives us the opportunity to
educate attendees in flying and building skills, entertain each other in flying
related areas, ‘Show and Tell’ fellow club members with our modeling skills, as
well as creating an atmosphere of good camaraderie for anyone interested in this
great hobby of ours. We also have an annual banquet where we honor our members
and sponsors with awards and recognition.
Community activities and involvement is
extremely important to Arvada Associated Modelers and we invite all members, new
and old, to support our club activities by joining in the fun. The club
participates in the largest parade in the state of Colorado. We also host a very
exciting air show each fall in conjunction with the Arvada Harvest Festival
festivities. We belong to the ‘Adopt a Highway’ program as a community service
for our city, county, and state. Our organization has for many years
participated in assisting handicapped children and their counselors in learning
to fly through a program we call "Dreams of Flight", held at the
Easter Seals Handicamp, located about 40 miles west of our flying
We feel that the
best way to enjoy our hobby is by belonging to an active organization, that will
nurture your desire to become an "Ace in The Sky", assist you in the
basics of the game, and assist everyone who wants it with top level aerobatic
training. We encourage everyone to visit our new world-class flying field
located on State Highway 93, east of the road between 64th Avenue and Leyden
Road. Come out to visit, just watch, or ask questions of any of our members.
Arvada Associated Modelers Airpark is open 7 days a week from dawn to dusk.
Please feel welcome to attend our monthly meetings, held on the first Tuesday
of each month at 7:00 P.M., at the Arvada Presbyterian Church, located atop the
hill, at 5592 Independence Street, Arvada, Colorado.
